wednesday the 20th, drive with brett: 6-7pm ‘the covers show’

An hour long mix of covers and versions of traditional songs, with a background soundtrack of The Residents’ Third Reich and Roll. The Third Reich and Roll is a twisted, atonal, arhythmic, nigh-unlistenably mad son-of-a-bitch covers record. I whole-heartedly recommend it. (wiki that shit)

ARTIST – SONG (ORIGINAL ARTIST)

Tom Waits – The Return of Jackie and Judy (The Ramones)

Yo La Tengo – Nuclear War (Sun Ra)

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan – Ramblin’ Man (Hank Williams)

The Clash – Wrong Em Boyo (trad)

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Stagger Lee (trad)

(the preceding two songs are both versions of a traditional blues ‘Stagger Lee’. Check out this article from the guardian for a nice history of the song)

The Fall – Victoria (The Kinks)

Sonic Youth – Rowche Rumble (The Fall)

Wilco – 13 (Big Star)

Belle and Sebastian – Whiskey in the Jar (trad.)

The Residents! Madness!

Until next Wednesday,
Brett
